POLICE are warning drivers not to bring their cars to North Wales 'for a spin' after seizing a Mustang and a Porsche.

On Sunday, police stopped a white Ford Mustang on the A525 in Wrexham.

The driver told officers that he has travelled from Cambridge to do some sightseeing.

However, police found the car had false plates and was unregistered.

The Leader:

The Mustang was seized

North Wales Police Roads Policing Unit tweeted: "This was stopped on the #A525 Wrexham. The reg came back to a Vauxhall not a Mustang. The driver had put false plates on his unregistered, imported car to avoid being stopped! He hadn’t only travelled unessessarily from Cambridge today to do some sightseeing, he now has no car!"

The Leader:

The Porsche seized at Bala.

And on Saturday, a driver from the Shropshire area was challenged by police in Bala when he took his Porsche for 'a spin'.

The Roads Policing Unit tweeted: "The driver of this Porsche decided to come 'for a spin' from the Shropshire area this morning.

"Stopped in Bala whilst we were on patrol.

"He has been reported under the new #COVID19 legislation and will be dealt with by the court."

Also on Sunday, Roads Policing officers seized two off road bikes being ridden by two men from Merseyside near the Llanberris Pass.

The Leader:

Bikes seized at Capel Curig.

The unit tweeted: "Two males from Wallasey riding their off-road motorbikes on A4086 Capel Curig towards Llanberis Pass. Failed to stop for Llanrwst Officers. Both stopped by us and reported to court for no insurance, fail to stop for Police and offences under Covid Legislation. Bikes seized."

Despite the seizures, police say most people have been taking heed of the advice to stay at home and only travel when absolutely necessary.

The Leader:

Police say on the whole the roads were quiet in North Wales

North Wales Police said: "The vast majority of you are avoiding unnecessary travel so a huge thank you from us.

"We all have a shared responsibility to protect the NHS, please use your common sense and help us together to save lives.
